forastiere family funeral home and cremations

Recommendations for our visitors during COVID-19 


Our funeral homes continue to remain open and ready to serve each family and visitor. The CDC provides guidelines that we recommend families and visitors follow when on the premises of the funeral home. During this time and as directives from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Center for Disease Control (CDC), and recommendations from the National and Massachusetts Funeral Directors Associations evolve; we are committed to promote a safe and healthy environment. These recommendations promote your health and safety, as well as the community participating in all ceremonies, which include:

➢If not vaccinated, it is required to wear a mask at all times. 

➢Wash your hands and use hand sanitizer. Please visit our restrooms for hand-washing. Hand sanitizer is available within our buildings. 

➢Limit your time with people out of your immediate family. Therefore, please limit your time and limit congregating in groups within the funeral home. 

➢Avoid physical contact including shaking hands and embracing. 

➢Keep distance from others – Six feet for “social distancing.” 

We have Live-streaming and recording of ceremonies available for your convenience should the family request that option. This is another form of social distancing, and allows others to be part of the ceremonies who may be at a distance and unable to travel. 

     We value your health and thank you for following these safety guidelines. We appreciate your patience and support.
